Sec.  145.140  Canned seedless grapes.

    (a) Ingredients. Canned seedless grapes is the food prepared from 
one of the fresh or previously canned optional grape ingredients 
specified in paragraph (b) of this section which may be packed in one of 
the optional packing media specified in paragraph (c) of this section. 
Such food may also contain one, or any combination of two or more, of 
the following safe and suitable optional ingredients:
    (1) Natural and artificial flavors.
    (2) Spice.
    (3) Vinegar, lemon juice, or organic acids.


Such food is sealed in a container and before or after sealing is so 
processed by heat as to prevent spoilage.
    (b) Varietal types and styles. The optional grape ingredients 
referred to in paragraph (a) of this section are prepared from stemmed 
grapes of the light or dark seedless varieties or from unstemmed 
clusters of such grapes. For the purposes of paragraph (d) of this 
section, the names of such optional grape ingredients are ``light 
seedless grapes'' or ``dark seedless grapes'', as the case may be, 
preceded by the words ``unstemmed clusters'' where applicable.
    (c) Packing media. (1) The optional packing media referred to in 
paragraph (a) of this section, as defined in Sec.  145.3 are:
    (i) Water.
    (ii) Fruit juice(s) and water.
    (iii) Fruit juice(s).


Such packing media may be used as such or any one or any combination of 
two or more safe and suitable nutritive carbohydrate sweetener(s) may be 
added. Sweeteners defined in Sec.  145.3 shall be as defined therein, 
except that a nutritive carbohydrate sweetener for which a standard of 
identity has been established in part 168 of this chapter shall comply 
with such standard in lieu of any definition that may appear in Sec.  
145.3.
    (2) When a sweetener is added as a part of any such liquid packing 
medium, the density range of the resulting packing medium expressed as 
percent by weight of sucrose (degrees Brix) as determined by the 
procedure prescribed in Sec.  145.3(m) shall be designated by the 
appropriate name for the respective density ranges, namely:
    (i) When the density of the solution is less than 14 percent, the 
medium shall be designated as ``slightly sweetened water''; or ``extra 
light sirup''; ``slightly sweetened fruit juice(s) and water''; or 
``slightly sweetened fruit juice(s)'', as the case may be.
    (ii) When the density of the solution is 14 percent or more but less 
than 18 percent, the medium shall be designated as ``light sirup''; 
``lightly sweetened fruit juice(s) and water''; or ``lightly sweetened 
fruit juice(s)'', as the case may be.
    (iii) When the density of the solution is 18 percent or more but 
less than 22 percent, the medium shall be designated as ``heavy sirup''; 
``heavily sweetened fruit juice(s) and water''; or ``heavily sweetened 
fruit juice(s)'', as the case may be.
    (iv) When the density of the solution is 22 percent or more but not 
more than 35 percent, the medium shall be designated as ``extra heavy 
sirup''; ``extra heavily sweetened fruit juice(s) and water''; or 
``extra heavily sweetened fruit juice(s)'', as the case may be.
    (d) Labeling requirements. (1) The name of the food is ``seedless 
grapes.'' The name of the food shall also include a declaration of any 
flavoring that characterizes the product as specified in Sec.  101.22 of 
this chapter and a declaration of any spice or seasoning that 
characterizes the product; for example, ``Spice added'', or in lieu of 
the word ``Spice'', the common name of the spice, or ``Seasoned with 
lemon juice''. When two or more of the optional ingredients specified in 
paragraphs (a) (2) and (3) of this section are used, such

[[Page 416]]

words may be combined as for example, ``Seasoned with cider vinegar, 
cloves, and cinnamon oil''.
    (2) The color type and style of the grape ingredient as provided in 
paragraph (b) of this section and the name of the packing medium 
specified in paragraphs (c) (1) and (2) of this section, preceded by 
``In'' or ``Packed in'' or the words ``solid pack'', where applicable, 
shall be included as part of the name or in close proximity to the name 
of the food. When the packing medium is prepared with a sweetener(s) 
which imparts a taste, flavor or other characteristic to the finished 
food in addition to sweetness, the name of the packing medium shall be 
accompanied by the name of such sweetener(s), as for example in the case 
of a mixture of brown sugar and honey, an appropriate statement would be 
``------ sirup of brown sugar and honey'' the blank to be filled in with 
the word ``light'', ``heavy'', or ``extra heavy'' as the case may be. 
When the liquid portion of the packing media provided for in paragraphs 
(c) (1) and (2) of this section consists of fruit juice(s), such 
juice(s) shall be designated in the packing medium as:
    (i) In the case of a single fruit juice, the name of the juice shall 
be used in lieu of the word ``fruit'';
    (ii) In the case of a combination of two or more fruit juices, the 
names of the juices in the order of predominance by weight shall either 
be used in lieu of the word ``fruit'' in the name of the packing medium, 
or be declared on the label as specified in paragraph (d)(3) of this 
section; and
    (iii) In the case of a single fruit juice or a combination of two or 
more fruit juices any of which are made from concentrate(s), the words 
``from concentrate(s)'' shall follow the word ``juice(s)'' in the name 
of the packing medium and in the name(s) of such juice(s) when declared 
as specified in paragraph (d)(3) of this section.
    (3) Whenever the names of the fruit juices used do not appear in the 
name of the packing medium as provided in paragraph (d)(2)(ii) of this 
section, such names and the words ``from concentrate'', as specified in 
paragraph (d)(2)(iii) of this section, shall appear in an ingredient 
statement pursuant to the requirements of Sec.  101.3(d) of this 
chapter.
    (4) Label declaration. Each of the ingredients used in the food 
shall be declared on the label as required by the applicable sections of 
parts 101 and 130 of this chapter.
